Confessions of Super Mom by Melanie Lynne Hauser

Title: Confessions of Super Mom

Author: Melanie Lynne Hauser

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: After a horrible Swiffer accident, Birdie discovers that she has super powers - for cleaning.

The Take-Away: The tag is Chick Lit, but technically, it should be fantasy. How often do you combine bleach and amonia and not have bad things happen? Thankfully for Ms Hauer's fans, it wasn't the typical results.

Super Mom has a similar rocky start as most super heros (think Spiderman and Batman) but is way cooler. She can clean anything. I'd love it if I had a freaky accident that left me with that as a super power.

When agents and editors ask for "same, but different" Ms Hauser understood.

Recommendation: Buy it and tell your friends to do the same.
